Hobbies and Outside Interests
I’ve always wanted to be a “Renaissance Man” and even took several classes in Renaissance Art and History which at Princeton. I have traveled to 41 countries, and 44 U.S. States as of 2015, and love exploring new places, geographies, landscapes and cultures. My favorite country is Italy (as you might guess from my name) and I speak conversational Italian.
I have been involved in the arts for many years, and taken classes and created individual art works in painting, sculpture, drawing, memoir writing and poetry. These days I’m mostly into writing since it’s the most “portable” of the arts. I’ve started a few novels — and we’ll see if and when I decide to publish them.
In the athletic arena, I’ve played all kinds of sports as a kid and went to Athletic summer camps every year. My primary sport became track and cross-country as a middle and long-distance runner. I continued to run track in College, but unfortunately had an injury that ended my running career. These day I like to sail, cross-country ski, downhill ski, and go hiking and camping. Oh, and I like golf and bowling – if that’s a sport 🙂
